David Luiz’s stunning season with Chelsea has not gone unnoticed by Barcelona, so recently humiliated by Bayern Munich in the Champions League. The Catalans are desperate to find a center-back to replace ageing defender Carles Puyol. Luiz can also play in midfield and scores spectacular long-range goals too. When was the last time Barca scored one of those? Click here for this and more rumors about Edinson Cavani and Robert Lewandowski.
Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar attended fellow countryman David Luiz’s birthday party and was sporting a Chelsea shirt. The only problem is, Julio Cesar is currently the keeper for Queens Park Rangers.
This photo has been circulating the internet and has even forced QPR to investigate the matter. Could you imagine Wayne Rooney sporting a Liverpool jersey or Steven Gerrard in an Arsenal jersey? It’s very understandable that both the club and it’s supporters aren’t pleased.
What’s going to happen to Cesar now - benching? Fine? Suspension?
David Luiz is a central defender, but at times this season he’s also been deployed as a midfielder. As many of you know, Luiz has also been taken free kicks for Chelsea this year, as opposed to, say, Frank Lampard, Oscar, or Eden Hazard. Now we know why.
Luiz hit this absolute rocket from about 30 yards to give Chelsea the lead over Fulham on Wednesday. What a beautifully struck goal by Sideshow Bob!
Definitely a goal of the month!
For some unknown reason, Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero was not booked for this tackle on Chelsea’s David Luiz. In good “kick him while he’s down” measure, he jumped in for a two footed stomp on Luiz’s backside. The referee was either taking a nap or looking in the opposite direction as Aguero was allowed to stay on for the 2-1 FA Cup victory.
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini offered his thoughts on the incident:

Should Aguero have been sent off?
Not really. Adidas has launched a new campaign to promote the new Chelsea 2013/2014 home kit. Calling out diehard blues supporters, adidas is inviting fans to pre-order the new kit without even seeing it. In their words, “It’s blue, what else matters?”
Are you hardcore enough to buy this kit without even seeing it?
